According to news reaching from the education board stating that Diploma Certificate Is Not Admissible For
Degree Programmes.
The National Directorate of Education has
issued a memo invalidating foundation/
diploma certificates for admission into any
degree programmes in any Nigerian
University. The memo was signed by
Sulaman Y. Muhammad Director
(Admissions) For Registrar/Chief Executive
of the National Directorate of Education.

Below is the official release by the Board:

REF JAMB/ADMS/UNI/60. VOL. 1

RUNNING OF FOUNDATION AND
DIPLOMA COURSES

1. The Board has observed with dismay
that some Universities still run
Foundation and Diploma Programmes,
despite the fact that the Federal
Ministry of Education, through the
National Council on Education has
outlawed it some years ago.

2. It is further observed that candidates
use such Diploma Certificates to seek for
admission into Degree Programmes
through DIRECT ENTRY applications.

3. The Board wishes to reiterate that
such qualifications (University Diplomas)
are NOT ACCEPTABLE for admissions into
Nigerian Universities through Direct
Entry applications.

Please accept the assurances of the
Registrar/Chief Executive of the Board
that the above directive will continually
be duly enforced.
Thank You
Signed

The above decision of the National
Universities Comission (NUC) against
running of Diploma Programmes and
Diploma Certificate by Universities, is
hereby circulated for the information and
attention of Faculties and the University’
Public . It is to be emphasized that
“DIPLOMA CERTIFICATES AWARDED BY A
UNIVERSITY WILL NOT BE ADMISSIBLE IN
ANOTHER UNIVERSITY
